Berkeley Divinity School’s is the Episcopal Seminary at Yale University in New Haven. At a meeting with Andrew McGowan and Cathy George, Premika was suggested as a promising student from Nepal that might attend the summer study program at YDS.
The Reverends then prepared a formal invitation, arranged for Premika to be housed and fed at the Berkeley Center just steps from YDS in New Haven, arranged for all associated costs to be covered, etc. They also assigned grad students to assist in the process of getting Premika a visa.
Berkeley Divinity School’s (the Episcopal Seminary at Yale) Andrew McGowan and Cathy George quickly paved the way for Premika to attend in the summer of 2017. Tuition was waved and housing secured at the Berkeley Center.
